WND Laughably Calls Pam Geller A 'Media Star'
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A June 26 WorldNetDaily article by Chelsea Schilling on Great Britain's refusal to allow anti-Muslim activists Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer into the country carries the laughable headline "U.K. bans another U.S. media star."

The only claim to media "stardom" Schilling cites for Geller is that she's a WND columnist.

Schilling -- whose history of making false and misleading claims at WND is legion -- goes on to describe the English Defence League only as the group "which invited Geller and Spencer to its event," failing to mention the EDL's history of violence and Islamophobia. Schilling also didn't mention that EDL leader Tommy Robinson was recently convict of entering the U.S. under a false identity to attend an anti-Islam event with Geller.

That "another" person referenced in the headline as having been banned from  Britain is Michael Savage, who apparently is also a "media star" in the eyes of WND. Of course, Schilling fails to disclose that WND hosts Savage's website.

In a companion piece, Geller used her WND column to rant about the ban, claiming that anyone who criticizes her and Spencer for their anti-Muslim activism supports jihad and Sharia law.
